Self Confidence Where Have You Gone?

My self confidence tank is running on empty. There's just nothing in it right now. I'm trying like hell to dig myself out of this hole that I've found myself in lately. This hole where I'm just not pleased with my appearance. I'm running and working out, and reaching out to my accountability partners and I'm just not seeing a change.

It's been a month of hard work and the scale isn't moving, my shape isn't changing and my confidence is plummeting. I need something to change. I just need a little something to encourage me to keep on keeping on.

And here's another issue while I'm being a complete narcissist, I can't share personal fashion pics on my blog. I know, I know I'm vain. But I have some really super cute clothes and accessories to share with you. Stuff that will knock your socks off but I'm just not comfortable enough to stand in front of a camera and work it.
     I feel silly.
     I get embarrassed.
     It's just not happening.

I know I'm my harshest critic but let's be honest when you do fashion posts you're really putting yourself out there. I don't know how some of you do it so often. You ladies are so brave and I truly admire your confidence. I wish I could take a lesson from your book.

And that's it. That's my two cents for the day. I'll pick my head up and get over it but right now I'm just not feeling, well, beautiful.

But as a little happy, so that isn't such a depressing post, I'm going to leave you with this. It makes me laugh every time. My twerking toddler.

Be Blessed,

    Can I be honest here Bert? Just take them and post them. Sometimes when you can't find the confidence in yourself you can ask others to help you. If you post pictures of yourself, I know others and I will love them. In turn you will find if you hear it enough from others, you will start hearing it from yourself. Then you wont even realize you believe it. I know you are going through a hard time with your body image, but you are a beautiful woman, with some great style. Hence why I go to you for advise. I would love to help you with this as your sister, but I can only help if you want it. I love you Brittany, in the mean time just tell yourself your beautiful till you start believing it, because the rest of us know it!

  3. You are so sweet. Thank you for the encouraging words!

  4. Awww, you are too cute. Look at your babes, see the beauty? That's you. Beautiful you. Look in that mirror and smile. I would love to see your fashion photos. There will be many appreciative peeps following you. Sending a big warm [[[hug]]]

  5. You are always so sweet and supportive. Thank you so much for the encouraging words!

  6. I know what you mean. I went on a very healthy/strict diet (basically raw vegan) for a month to fit into a bridesmaid dress, the month before the wedding (shame on me, I know!). I didn't lose a pound and still barely fit into my dress even thought I went over 30 days working out everyday and eating ridiculously healthy. It can get irritating to keep it up!
    Also, everyone will support you if you post fashion pics! Confidence is key! (Even when I don't have it lol)
